kindle touch hacks for handicapped people


I am investigating, if it is allready possible to
adapt a kindle touch to the needs of handicapped people.

This would be the needs:

A: disable all features except page turning while reading
Currently, while reading, the touch interface interprets long touches with shifts as selection of words. There must be an option to turn this off, waiting for very robust commands to turn forward or back.

B: change overall font sizes to be much bigger,
especially in menues, book title selection

C: switch to landscape mode for booke title selection
and book reading

It seeems to be possible to implement B and C at the moment
but I did not find any efforts to simplify the touch gestures (A).
Does anyone have some insight, whether this could be possible ?

Is there a thread, blog post or wiki page collecting needs
of handicapped people and possible solutions ?

Thank you,

Thomas Kalka
